im about 6'1" 192 lbs and just started working out hard for about a month now.

here is my workout schedule...

Monday: Chest and Arms
Bench
Incline
Dumbell Flys
Tricep Pulldowns
Skull Crushers
Curls
Cardio: around 1.5 miles jogging

Tuesday: Back
Deadlifts
Lat Pulldowns
Upright Row
Cardio

Thursday: Legs
Squat
Leg Press
Hamstring curls
Calf Raises

Friday: Shoulders and Abs
Tri-set shoulders
Bent Over Dumbell Row
Dumbell Shoulder Press
Shrugs
Abs
Cardio

My diet is around 2500 cal's a day. I stay away from fried food or anything that is considered unhealthy really. I get a lot of protein and plenty of good fats.

I know Friday is not that big of a day weight lifting wise but it seems like a good day to get the little stuff in. Any advice would be nice.

Here at the pictures...

That setup actually looks pretty good man. Keep your diet on track and you'll have gains no problem.

I'm not personally a fan of your split, but that's largely because I prefer to hit everything at least twice a week, and really I seem to do best with 3x a week.
I think you should go for a standard beginner 5x5 as described here (http://www.elitefitness.com/forum/showthread.php?t=375215)or go dig up the Mark Rippetoe program once the search function is working again.
And eat- I'm not too scientific with this stuff, so I'd just say shoot for another 1000 calories or so. Drinking a lot of milk helps with that.
You'll be fine. :thumbup:

Looks alright, there's better routines out there though. I'd recommend doing cardio on off days instead to maximize gains, and eating a lot.

do you guys think that i should be bulking or cutting at this point. im not real fond of my guy and would like to get more defined so i figure i should cut now and then bulk later.

you could probably get away with a routine comprised of mainly the big 3 squat, bench, & deads. If you think your hairy, I must be sasquatch.

Bulk. Right now you need size more than you need leanness.
Don't even start worrying about the gut until you're at least 210-220.

Keep things as simple as possible. There's really no reason why you need to do 6 exercises on your "chest day". Pick three compound movements/training session, hit them hard and then get out of the gym and eat.
